How can you get a job at repossessing cars?

you need to contact lenders/banks to find out what their requirements are:trucks, insurance, etc. if your still interested make some calls to local guys and see if they are hiring. Unless you are trying to start your own repo company, calling lenders is not necessary. Try looking up "Repossession" in your local phone book and make some calls. Find out what the requirements are to work for them. Some states, like California, say that you have to have an individual license to do repossessions. To get that license you can't have a criminal record. It only takes a minute to make a call. Isn't that where the money is in starting your repo business?

Is there a place to find rules and regulations for repossessing vehicles in the state of Indiana?

If this is a contract sale of a motor vehicle, then Indiana Code 26-1-9.1-609 "Secured Party's right to take possession after default". In Indiana - self help repossession is permitted as long as there is no breach of the peace. WHOOPS - you want to be a repo man. There are no specific licenses for repo in Indiana. You'd have to check with your insurance company about bonding. The private detective field and repo field are closely related. You might check with the Indiana Secretary of State, Indiana Attorney General's office or you can call Indiana Professional Licensing Agency 317-234-3040 but that is mainly for PI work license.

If there is a repo fee on your account does that mean they are trying to repossess your car?

Good did you find out about the repo fee?? Have you been repoed before?? Are you in default now?? If you're not in default, dont worry about it, hope they repo it so you can sue them.... IF you ARE in default, pay up today Yes that is what it means. If you were behind on your payments and didn't call the lender to work out a deal before a repossession order was issued, Then you payed before a repo agent picked it up you are responsible to pay the repo fee and the lender is responsible for calling off the repo. If you have payed and the lender failed to call the repo agent and you get repoed you can bring up ''wrongfull repossession charges'' and that falls on the lender. In your signed contract you agreed to this and so did the lenders. The above response is incorrect THE LENDER CANNOT CHARGE YOU FOR SOMETHING (a repo in this case)WHICH HAS NOT TAKEN PLACE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF they try too.... SUE them and there "agents"

If you voluntarily offer your car for repo in Colorado How much of the remaining debt can you be liable for?

The difference in what the car sells for and the balance on the loan, plus repo, and administrative costs. Very, very, bad idea to allow this to happen.

Your credit will suffer for 7 years. Do not allow this to happen, if at all possible,

There are no particular laws pertaining to starting a repo company in SC. Of course you must follow the no breach of peace laws which apply everywhere. Some cities in the state require a business license some do not. Most all counties do not. There is no "repo licensing" in SC or NC. Most clients of any size will require that you have a 3 Million aggregate insurance policy covering wrongful repossession along with a One million dollar dishonesty bond. Some clients require certification through a national certification course such as the C.A.R.S. program. Much would depend on the clients you intend to work for.

If your loan is current and you turn the vehicle back in to the lender can it still be reported as a repo?

YES! A repo is a repo. If you turn the vehicle in to the lender and stop making payments this is called a voluntary repossession. The lender will sell the car and you will be responsible for the difference in what the car sells for and the balance on the loan. It will be reported to all 3 credit bureaus as a default on a loan, and your credit will be ruined for 7 years. You would however save to repo fees such as towing. Do not do this. Call the lender and work something out if possible.
